If I could, I'd also classify this band as tech-indie, ambient, post-hardcore, post-metal, post-rock, shoegaze, and mathcore. Yea. Oceansize is one of the most amazing and intriguing bands I've ever heard. Lovely Gavin Rossdale/Chris Cornell-esque vocals on top of lightly distorted guitars and powerful drums with the occasional pummeling of double bass. And you can't forget the presence of the piano ambience. Oceansize maintains their composure from song to song, whether it be a slow post-rock song like "Savant" or an aggresive powerhouse like "Unfamiliar" or "Sleeping Dogs And Dead Lions". This CD contains 9 songs and manages to keep it under 115MB. Lol. This is another band that I push people to listen to. So if you have time to chillout and listen to about an hour and a half of eargasms, then I strongly encourage you to give this CD a try. For fans of Amplifier, A Perfect Circle, and music without any boundaries.

Part Uno
